Re: Should I upgrade to E_M1 Mk II?

I'm buying from one of the discounting stores (chain actually) that get their products through Camera House (wholesale distributor) that buys at a quantity wholesale discount & distributes to their own stores plus a number of others, but in their Ads leaflet letterbox drop today it shows no discount on it at all in their own stores (but $200 off E-M5 II) & yet I'm getting it $300 cheaper from one of the retailers that buy through them.
I'm going to have to wait though & could be a few weeks as they have to restock (Camera House were sent a delivery of E-M1's from Olympus Australia today), but worth waiting for as the next best price in Sydney was $100 more & I've waited this long already to get one. I wasn't going to buy interstate since Olympus is in Sydney & in the (hopefully not) possible unfortunate case where it could be DoA I can at least drive it back to the retail store (& also Olympus Service, if I need to).

Just remember to upgrade your Capture One to 10.1.2. That works really well with the E-M1 Mk II.

Thanks, I've just done that now. I think I may have skipped one or two with a possible PC issue with one attempt. I need to update OV3 if it will this time as well. That didn't want to complete last time I tried.

OV3 keeps failing on attempting on updating. I may have to uninstall it if I want to install it again.

It's the OV3 software I'm trying to update (from 2.1.2), not a camera thanks.

Yes, but I think I will sort out the OV3 software first since it also contains the updater as I don't want to have the camera FW go wrong even though it's only an hour's drive down the road to get it to Olympus. I'm wondering what level it will have as it came from Olympus Australia during the last two weeks & I'd be interested to know when it left the factory.
